Sonny Bill Williams issued warning for huge hit on Conrad Smith

Real bug bear... how in the hell can you use words like "slipped up a little high" if the initial point of contact was on the head?!?!?!

Don't get me wrong, it was probably accidental and a penalty is fine, but things like "slipped up", "Initially legal", etc etc are complete BS in this scenario....

Unless of course you and the rest think things like these are classed as 'slip ups' and 'initially legal'

Sonny Bill Williams issued warning for huge hit on Conrad Smith

Don't get me wrong guys, I'm not calling for blood, or even cards.. But what are people on about with all this 'initial' (commentators are included in my little rant)...

As Bobmac above said, pause at 0:56.. THAT right there is 'initial' - All I can see here is a shoulder to the head.

Like I said, I've not got much of a problem with the video/incident, it's penalty worthy at most, but I'm just bemused by the commentary stating how it started off legal...

...I'd imagine this video got a lot less views than their average videos...

Former Wallaby Wendell Sailor breaks opponents arm in charity arm wrestle

A few points:

That was horrific!
That sound brings back a few memories on the pitch, fortunately the sounds weren't from me.
Wendell Sailor is 40?!?!? Bloody hell!

Touching Haka from Under 20's in honour of fallen hero Jerry Collins

Great video!

I was just looking up the pictures of Chris Masoe with his hair bleached and in a few articles it shows Collins in flight with ball in hand, or making a tackle etc. It just dawned on me, there are quite a few pictures of him playing without a mouth guard. I know it sort of doesn't matter now and I'm not sure what point I am making (if any), but it's just interesting how some players choose not to wear them - or at least aren't wearing them in a fair few pictures.

The day Jerry Collins played for Barnstaple Rugby Football Club's 2nd XV

Apparently it meant a lot to the opposition players too. I don't mean that in a tongue in cheek way (although I'm sure there was a big element of that too!) but I remember reading that one of the opposition players said that JC was very humble in the fact he didn't just turn on the International level and steam roll the whole lot of them. He said he could tell that JC was playing at a small portion of his actual skill in order to just have a bit of fun and keep the game 'fairly' even....

That man bra thing is certainly something not else... Used to hold heart rate monitors or something?!? Or just to stop immense pecs from jiggling around?!

Still caught up on the Jerry Collins thing so unfortunately, couldn't laugh as much as I'd want to!
